Default New grips, mirrors and no emblems! (pics)

I got some Arlen Ness Rad III mirrors and Avon Spike grips. I also took off my tank badges and put a few coats of wax on her. I can't wait to keep customizing and making this 8 ball my own. I am going to keep doing small mods and get my stage 1 kit done next spring.

I just realized, in the second pic, I got my fiancťs bike in the background. Kinda cool! HAHA, hope you enjoy! Let me know what you guys and gals think.

Very nice additions! I have the same grips on my XC in the chrome version.

Is the tank staying the way it looks now?

I actually had something in mind.....I was thinking about getting realistic flames airbrushed on the tins.

The only thing is that i am very picky and would have to find someone who does top notch work. Do you guys have anyone in mind that is in the MI, OH area?
I also like the idea of green flames. I don't know, either one of those, or I will keep it stealth.

Default Hot!

I LIKE them! Nice choices...

Keep the tanks naked, it distracts from the menacing demeanour of the 8-balls

(both bikes are nice!)
